The term "Optical Technologies" covers a wide range of concepts and applications which use the properties of electromagnetisc radiation and today take part in nearly any area of everyday life, research and production.
Main competences of our institute in this field relay to digital imagery and camera technologies. We use cameras for precise measurements. Combined with algorithms it is possible to identify elements within images for a later localisation and use for varying mathematical models in relation to surveying needs.
Our existing skills include the treatment and mathematical description of cameras and precision measurments, the development of suitable algorithms for processing images and the mathematical modeling of surveying. Typical fields of applications are in industrial quality control, but also in medicine, metrology or spatial humanities.
